Jesus said, “‘Stay in the city, then, until you are clothed with the power from on high.’
Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them.
Now as he blessed them, he withdrew…” (Luke 24:49-51, NJB)
and just like that
you up from our lives,
as if we had nothing better to do
than more the earth ensouled as yours,
deprived of indifference
